1985 – 2017. Microsoft Paint. Rest in peace.
The era of the legendary Windows app, the Microsoft Paint is now coming to an end with the upcoming release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The image-editing application has officially been included in the list of the “Features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update,” as noted by The Guardian.
Microsoft Paint was released with the very first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985. Since then, it has been one of the first graphics editors to be used by many and became a core part of Windows.
Though, the Paint was never one of the most capable apps and stayed behind its time, whenever you wanted to make a quick cut and paste job, Paint was always there, even on work computers. It remained an integral part of the Windows for 32 years.
Falling under the deprecated column means that the Microsoft Paint will not be in active development and it might be removed in future releases. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update might have the app, but it’s only a matter of time before it is removed forever.
